Maybe it’s time for JuJu Smith-Schuster to get a car.
Just a guess, but I think Steelers rookie JuJu Smith-Schuster might be the only player in the NFL without a driver’s license. That means he has to ride his bike everywhere. Or at least, he did, until someone stole his bike on Tuesday. (UPDATE: It’s been found!)
Smith-Schuster was forced to walk to practice because someone took off with his ride.
He’s clearly taking the loss pretty hard, and you can’t blame him. Not only is it his only mode of transportation, it looks like it cost him a bunch.
Teammate Antonio Brown is hoping to help reunite Smith-Schuster with his wheels, offering tickets to a Steelers game to anyone who brings the bike back.
Mt. Oliver police department said on Twitter that someone turned in the bike to authorities after purchasing the bike and seeing reports on the news that the bike was stolen. Smith–Schuster will be reunited with the bike on Wednesday.
Maybe it’s best for Smith-Schuster to retire the bike, though. It’s about to be winter in Pittsburgh and cars fare much better in the snow than bikes.
